Daily Compliance Item- 9.26.16- Fundraising Events and Season of Competition

Tin Cup is a freshman golf student-athlete at Ocean State University (OSU). Tin and his teammates are going to participate in the annual OSU golf program fundraiser event this weekend. The coach was planning on having Tin redshirt during the 2016-17 academic year, so if Tin participates in the fundraising event with the other student-athletes, coaches and boosters, will he have utilized a season of competition?

No with conditions. NCAA Bylaw states that a student-athlete may engage in outside competition in either one alumni game, one fundraising activity or one celebrity sports activity during a season without counting such competition as a season of competition, provided the event is exempted from the institution’s maximum number of contests or dates of competition as permitted in the particular sport per Bylaw 17. (Adopted: 1/16/10 effective 8/1/10, Revised: 7/31/14)
